    Access™ Series 12AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Speaker Wire, 100ft

    Get the most out of your home audio system with high quality, oxygen-free, pure bare copper speaker wire from Monoprice!

    This speaker wire features two conductors made of high purity (greater than 99.95% pure), oxygen-free bare copper. Pure Bare Copper is a superior conductor to the copper clad aluminum (CCA) conductors used in most other inexpensive speaker wire. CCA is only about 68% as conductive as pure bare copper. This additional resistance is added to the impedance of your speakers and can negatively effect the sound.

    For the wire to have no audible effect, the total wire resistance should be no more than 5% of the lowest impedance of your speakers. Even speakers rated for a nominal 8-ohms, may dip to as low as 4-ohms at some frequencies, which further reduces the total cable resistance allowed in the wire. Using Pure Bare Copper speaker wire ensures that the total load put on the amplifier remains as close as possible to the impedance curve of your speakers.

    For example, a 16AWG 2-conductor Pure Bare Copper speaker wire has a total resistance of 0.803 ohms per 100 feet (both directions must be considered). By comparison, a 16AWG 2-conductor CCA speaker wire has a total resistance of 1.181 ohms per 100 feet. Assuming 4 ohms is the lowest impedance of your speakers, a speaker wire run can be no more 0.2-ohms total. 20 feet of 16AWG Pure Bare Copper would be 0.1606 ohms, well under the 0.2-ohm limit. On the other hand, 20 feet of 16AWG CCA would be 0.2362 ohms, well OVER the 0.2-ohm limit.

    Each conductor is jacketed with color-coded PVC for easy polarity identification. The entire cable assembly is jacketed in a white, CL2-rated PVC material. The CL2 rating indicates that the cable complies with fire safety and insurance requirements, making it safe for use inside the walls of residential class buildings.

    Great product for a great price
    This is the best price I could find for 12 AWG speaker wire. It is a no frills product, and all you would ever need for speakers (unless you are pulling ridiculously long runs or running ridiculously low impedance speakers). Don't believe the stupid hype for insanely expensive speaker wire. If you want to spend thousands of dollars on speaker wire, you are more than welcome to, but it won't sound any better than these.

    PROS: True to actual copper wire gauge, rather than getting all jacket and no wire.

    CONS: None

    Speaker Cable...Great price, works perfect
    This is high quality speaker cable the price is terrific. Comes in 100' spools. I used it to wire my in-wall speakers - behind the wall, through the attic, back down to location, and everything worked great.

    PROS: price, quality, ease of use.

    CONS: none

    Fantastic quality as usual from Monoprice - my kitchen in-ceiling speaker sounds great from my living room's zone 2 thanks to this quality speaker wire :)

    PROS: Lengthy

    CONS: Doesn't feed through wall by itself

    Great price
    This is a really great price for speaker wire. I think people really waste money on the big name brand wire and accessories. This wire is really easy to work with.

    PROS: Price Quality

    CONS: None

    My son recommended Monoprice to me. They had exactly what I needed and it was at an excellent price. I received exactly what I ordered in an appropriate timeframe. I was able to track the shipment online. I am very pleased and will use Monoprice in the future.
